Lyrics

I Come Undone

Written By: Carroll

Breathe it out and take it in
Eyes turn black walls start to spin
I want to go
But I’m locked behind the door
Chained to beds of burning sin
Lights turn red as you move in
I come undone
And bend around your tongue

Falling behind your eyes
Loose it all until beg for more
Leave me wrecked, I can not run
Addicted to the core
I come undone

Everything comes down to this
I never thought I’d make the wish
To be consumed inside
Your blackest lullaby
Waves of lust you pull me in
I let go as you begin
To pull apart, disintegrates my heart

Forever Is A Fiction

Written By: Carroll

Forever is a fiction
It captivates us where we sleep tonight
Forever is a fiction
It captivates us as we dream tonight

I felt the end before the start.
Surely we were lost in everything unspoken
I withdraw as you confess
Sweetly on your lips breathless still and broken

Forever is a fiction
It captivates us where we sleep tonight
Forever is a fiction
It captivates us as we dream tonight

It seems we always go too far
Intentions fall apart in the last conclusion
Left naked, tried and torn
As we play our part in delicate communion

And it will end
As it began
With hope that we’ll find it all again

But soon you will find
Soon you will find
Soon you will find
Soon you will find it all comes down that forever is a fiction

Fire

Written By: Carroll

Set the world on fire
With you tonight
In the last goodbye
I find your eyes

City lights fall on you tonight
I stand here so hypnotized
The world stops spinning

City lights fall I close my eyes
And find you swept so alive
In the sensation tonight

City lights fall so synchronized
As we find the other side
Grayscale and dreaming

City lights fall for the last time
We lay here in the Chaos
But we’re not shaken tonight

Your so easy I’m in love with you
If you want me to I’ll stay with you tonight
Your so easy I’m in love with you
If you want me to I’ll be with you tonight

Touch The Sky

Written By: Carroll

The world can’t stop you now
Your time is up
Your light is burning out

You liberate in vein
You’re not the only one
We bleed the same

I will find you
Lost in violence
Where I find you
Where you find me
As earth and soul divide
Unjustified
(But everything’s alright, you touch the sky)

You whisper as you go
Please understand
These things you’ll never know

It ruined at your will
These empty rooms
And halls are haunted still

The Bitter End

Written By: Carroll

Electro held us spinning as the night fell into bed
I recall it freezing but I forget what you said

Where are you now
I’ve been locked out
This bitter end
I’ll do without
We all fall down some times

Smoking out of windows till your secrets all laid clear
Driving into nowhere just to get away from here

Where are you now
I’ve been locked out
This bitter end
I’ll do without
We all fall down some times

I tried to keep you but you left without a trace
My eyes keep echoing as I recall your face.
You and I we move to fast
Things like this they never last
(Until the end)

Release

Written By: Carroll; Johnson

I can't walk any more down to your loving arms I find very far from life. As the dawn clears its way from all this darkness will I find you waiting there for me.

Time alone can not hold though hearts may stop beating as we fade out light begins to breath.

Tonight we dream with each other sweetly we will discover that as these dreams become older we walk inside the after life.
And I can feel that your with me as these eyes are descending.
But I believed in one thing, we'll walk inside the afterlife.

You walk along these streets alone. Though time erase the memories hold.
You throw your arms against the night and pray we find the other side.

Tonight we run
We find our love
Sweetly find
The afterlife
Release your light
